Fanboys finally seeing the light of day?

Now... Fanboys is somekind of a geek legend... like that rare Boba Fett toy that can fire missiles. Especially if you are a devoted reader of or a Star Wars geek (or most likely both) than you know about the battles that were fought over the storyline of this movie that locked this flick in development hell for years and years with the odd post about it popping up on various geek blogs.

Set in 1998, the story tells of a group of friends who, anxious for the premiere of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, decide to break into Skywalker Ranch and steal an early print of the film. The reason: One of them is suffering from cancer and wishes to see the film before his death. There was a lot of bruharhar about the removal of that cancer storyline in favor to make the movie more of a pisstake than a hommage to SW fans. Anyone interested can check the whole backstory at

For me the biggest question was: Will I give a damn about a movie that's about a movie that SUCKED and was the beginning of the end of the cooles Sci Fi trilogy ever?

Now this trailer hit the web and I must say: It looks damn funny. It resonates with me, being an Ex Star Wars geek. It can still be crap but at the trailer made me chuckle. So I do have A Last Hope something related to Star Wars isn't just a lame pointless cash in... and I might actually enjoy it! I just pray George Lucas wasn't involved in the script...
